Sony Promises That PlayStation 3 Support Will Continue

Posted on June 28, 2013 AT 03:17am

Sony Japan president Hiroshi Kawano has confirmed that there are absolutely no plans to shift focus from PlayStation 3 to PlayStation 4 and support for the console will continue.

“It’s been seven years since the release of the PS3,” Kawano told Famitsu (via Kotaku), “and the console continues to sell at a constant pace, plus we have many upcoming titles. We have no intention of immediately shifting from the PS3 to the PS4.”

Kawano also stated that PlayStation 3 owners will not be forced to upgrade to PlayStation 4, ”It will be a gradual process, and to say ‘we’re releasing a new console, so trade in your old ones for it’ would be a maker’s ego talking, plain and simple.”

Sony has confirmed that the PlayStation 4 is due to release this holiday season.
